Can you take cystex while pregnant?

I am 6 weeks pregnant and have a bad uti. I went to the dr and was put on antibiotics and they are helping some, but I am still in some pain. One of my friends gave me cystex and I took it and it helped so much! Then I thought about it and freaked out, I want to buy some more but I dont know if its safe and I cant get ahold of any drs since its the weekend. Anyone taken this while pregnant?

  • I did. It says the same thing every box says. Which is a vague, non-answer.

  • I found this on their website:
    We do not encourage taking Cystex or any medication, either over-the-counter or prescription while you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless you absolutely need it and your doctor okays it.
